Birds are impressive companions and when properly looked after can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Ann-imals Pet Supply Store have the knowledge and experience to guide you to the best food. All bird's dietary requirements are different, and what works best for some will not give adequate nutrition for others. To that end, we proudly offer the ME area to guarantee the best food for your feathered pals, improving their health and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a combination of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, numerous wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are chosen by specific species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food varies in order to attract as several species as possible, so while it satisfies their caloric needs, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is a common ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is generally a blend of similar seeds, with added nutritionally thick pellets included. Conures, doves, and pigeons enjoy millet, as do budgies and parakeets. They also enjoy safflower and sunflower seeds when they're hulled, though parrots and hookbills will prefer larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients consisted of, along with a variety of other all-natural seeds and fruits. These reinforce the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more very closely resemble their all-natural diet, which wouldn't generally consist of a few types of seeds.
Making certain appropriate nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions working efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds offer fat for their brains and nerves, and enhance the luster and shine of their feathers, while the various vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
Additionally, as your bird ages, you will wish to seek advice from a specialist on what type of food you must be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional requirements than older birds, and changing their food requires care and requires to be done slowly, as birds can have finicky digestive systems. Gradually incorporate the new food into your bird's meal, replacing more of the old seed with the new food every day to make certain appropriate adherence to the new diet.

I have been shopping at Annimals for years. Every time I go in, someone is always willing to help me find something or carry the large bags of food to the car. They also have everything I need for a dog with food allergies. I highly recommend Annimals!
Such friendly and knowledgeable staff! We don’t shop anywhere else for our Koda!

Ann-imals provides excellent service! if they don't carry a certain item, they'll be happy to special order for you. Their prices are comparable or lower than Chewy, and you'll be supporting a local small business.
I am so lucky to be only a few miles away from this fantastic store! The lovely people that run it are always so helpful and the selection of natural pet treats is always so good! I would highly switching from Chewy or Petco to this locally owned store!!!
